Help me choose between different GTX 770s please

as the title says, i am going to get my new gpu, a gtx 770 in 3 weeks top. usually, i do my own research and don't post another "help" topic but i really cannot decide at this moment.

I live in Turkey and gpus are limited, we do not have EVGA yet, (though they announced they are coming here "soon") and i have reduced the items on my list to 3.

Please do consider that i HAVE NO PLAN TO get a higher resolution monitor (i am using 1080p) and/or multiple monitors. i am going to use my card for mainly playing BF4 on ultra and recording any games using shadowplay, and i am thinking to overclock them up to %10 WITH STOCK cooler and without playing voltage (but i heard that you cant play with voltage on this cards anyway
it sets it up itself unlike my gtx 560)

1- this one is a little bit more expensive but it is ~30-40$ which can be affordable with a little sacrifice
ASUS GeForce GTX770-DC2OC-4GD5 4GB GDDR5 256 Bit 452.88$ + 81.52$ tax = total of 534.4$

2- this is the one i am thinking to get because i heard this one has the best cooling and noise performance of all three
GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-2GD GTX770 2 GB GDDR5 256 426.24$ + 76.72$ tax = total of 502.96$

3- i was thinking to get this one, but then i heard that gigabyte is much better at almost everything
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 770 AMP! Premium Pack 2 GB GDDR5 256 Bit 388.5$ + 93.93$ tax = total of 458.43$

so if i go for Asus one, i will have 4 GB instead of 2GB which gives me opportunity to have multiple monitors later on (i still would like to have the ability, even if i am not going to use it) but it will be 30MHz lower base clock compared to Gigabyte and 90 compared to Zotac,

if i go for Gigabyte, which is probably going to happen if there are no answers, it is between Asus and Zotac in every aspect.

if i go for Zotac it will save ~50 dollars over gigabyte ~78 dollars over asus, boost gpu clock and base gpu clock is the highest but it has (so i heard) worst cooling performans than others.

so what do you think about these prices and these cards? which one should i go for and why? and can you suggest another brand incase i can find?

Hello.

I personnaly think the 2 more GB of the Asus are useless. You can check for the GTX770, but in my case (660Ti), I read that the chip wasn't able to use the extra GB.

If you're playing on a single monitor @1080p no need to get 4gb of Vram. Also, the 256bit memory interface of the card might bottleneck the 4gigs...

The next best thing on the list is gigabyte. They make good Nvidia cards, atleast better than ZOTAC. If you can get a normal 2gb version of Asus' card get that.

If you're playing on high resolutions then get the 4gb edition.

Good luck!

thank you guys, i also think that extra 2 gb is kinda useless, but i have seen a video where a guy with 3 monitors can play bf4 on ultra (with no aa) with ~60 fps with a single evga 3gb gtx770 and card was using 2.6 gb ram. i havent seen any other "that much consuming" game as BF4 yet and (so far) if it is playable with bf4 it would be playable with rest, so it is a nice "maybe in the future" ability.

but the main part is which has better cooling; asus, gigabyte or zotac? which makes less noise, and does it worth the extra price to get the other one? i mean can anyone with zotac tell me is it a good card? or an asus one? if i go for zotac, and performance is ok compared to others (on paper it is better) it almost gives me enough money to buy an ok after market cooler for my cpu, but also i dont want to lose the chance of getting a way better and less noisy card for extra 30-70 dollars

p.s. this asus is not taking 3 slots right? i am not sure if i have 3 slots space for that ( this is my pc btw http://www.game-debate.com/gaming-pc/index.php?r_id=241... )

Wether AMD or Nvidia, ASUS makes the best of the best. Their DCUII coolers are superb and really quiet. Can you please link me to the ASUS card you wanna buy so I can see wether it's 3-slot?

I checked and it is not. And i changed my mind, i am going for asus but 2gb one. It is the coolest with least noise and can go up to 1250Mhz with no voltage change and also 10 dollars cheaper than gigabyte. Thank you all for your comments
